My wife is going to be teaching a computer beginner's class. For one early
part of it, she'd like to be able to open up a system and show everyone the
guts. Part of the emphasis will be on how it's not a mystic beast with a
powerful beating heart (my embellishment, not hers) but instead just a few
interlocked pieces, and what each of the rumored pieces actually looks like.
To do this, she'd prefer to use a system that's dead or retired, in place of a
new one that would have the potential for being broken. E.g., enthusiastic
student A presses finger B to SIMM board C.
Somewhere as a source in or around Dublin would be fine. Or even hints on
folks you think might be trashing a computer (lighter is better of course),
trying to sell one for scrap parts, or whatever, any such info is great!
You can reply to me or to her (elana at domain zen.org).
Thanks a lot,
